How to make your offshore operations cyber secure and reliable
June 15, 2021
Modern offshore operations are highly complex, generating tens of thousands of data points and transmitting them to onshore control centers across multiple types of networks. Offshore facilities also include technologies from many suppliers that interface with the main process control system, each with their own cybersecurity profile. Mature, proven control systems are often selected but require interfaces to new technologies. In this heterogeneous environment that combines old and new, understanding what's on the network can be a significant challenge. Similarly, tracking and managing patches, obsolescence, antivirus, and hardening profiles multiplies in complexity. Many IT offerings do not contemplate these environments so the industry is turning to customized OT cybersecurity products. Register for this free webinar and you will learn - Why cybersecurity is a critical consideration when implementing a de-manning strategy What are the current technologies that are being used in offshore digitalization and threat profiles How to reduce cybersecurity risk for offshore operations
